Fear in Martial Arts Part IV
Fear produces very stiff energy, making us perform techniques with jerky, panicky movements. Being stiff not only makes us slower, it also makes it much harder to overcome stronger opponents because we can no longer yield to force. On the mental side, fear makes us more likely to lose control and become violent. At this time our energy is also all over the place and firing out in all directions. This makes focusing our power impossible and gets us exhausted extremely quickly.
